A message from President Gittell to the Bryant community
Dear Bryant University faculty, students, parents, and staff,
In my first weeks as Bryant’s ninth president, I’ve listened closely and learned a lot about the student-centered spirit of the Bryant University community.
Bulldogs are highly motivated and have a competitive drive to succeed. They are very loyal to each other and to our University. Small acts, like holding the door open for the next person, have a ripple effect and build a deep sense of pride, place and purpose.
As the dynamic pandemic continues, at Bryant we will draw on our strong community and be agile and persevere. We will work together towards completing a healthy and safe fall semester. As new challenges emerge we will work together and draw on science and best practice to develop innovative solutions to meet the needs of our students, faculty and staff. We will keep our community well informed and engaged.
Each and every one of us shares responsibility for our campus and community.
Go Books! Go Bulldogs! Keep Bryant strong!
Bryant University President Ross Gittell, Ph.D.
